In the world of social media, Nigerians are taking to Twitter to highlight negative issues affecting our society with the hashtag #ItsNotOkay. There are no holds barred as people air their grievances on a variety of issues: abject poverty, rape, poor leadership, hypocrisy in Christendom and loveless relationships, just to name a few. The trending hashtag in question stems from an awareness campaign against societal injustices being held by Harvesters International Christian Centre (HICC) this August.
